John Bartlett (1820–1905).  Familiar Quotations, 10th ed.  1919.
 
 
NUMBER:4174
AUTHOR:Thomas Gray (1716–1771)
QUOTATION:Fair laughs the morn, and soft the zephyr blows;
  While proudly riding o’er the azure realm
In gallant trim the gilded vessel goes,
  Youth on the prow, and Pleasure at the helm;
Regardless of the sweeping whirlwind’s sway,
That hush’d in grim repose expects his evening prey.
ATTRIBUTION:The Bard. II. 2, Line 9.
